Can You See Me by Lynne Lee is a psychological thriller.
First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Amazon Publishing, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
My Synopsis: (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions)
Julia's husband has recently died, and her focus has been on seeing her daughter Tash through this devastating time. Although she had plans to divorce David, no one knew, so she's ...more
I really enjoyed the story as it unfolded and I liked Julia a lot, she was so real and very easy to empathise with. Her feelings seemed very real and I enjoyed the slow progression of the romance.
I had half guessed the twist at the end but I still really enjoyed it.
I would absolutely recommend this book if you feel like you'd ...more
First up, one of my fave lines from the book: ‘… it hits me that our past is all so much debris clinging to the tideline; ..’
I connected with each and every character in this book. I could relate. They were all real and believable. The narrative hooked me and pulled me right in, much as a moth to a fl ...more
It is a brilliant book which managed to throw a good few red herrings at me - not at all an easy task. Lynne Lee opens a whole new world of introspe ...more

Would you blindly follow someone off the cliff?
Would you help a troubled person in need especially one with a mental illness and or drug addiction?
Lessons are meant to be learned.
What if you are simply too gullible and believe everything you are told?
I have a saying for those who fall for the trap, remember that even fool's gold shines...especially with regards to personality trait disorders such as narcissism.
So with this said lets begin -Shall we?!
Coming up from the beach, Julia sees a young boy hanging around her cottage. When he spots her, he starts running and she chases him. She want ...more
I loved so many things about this book:
I loved the writing style, which really drew me in
I loved the way that the story was going in one direction, and then suddenly there were some surprises
I loved how this was different from anything I've read in a while
I loved the main characters and their stories
So why am I torn?
There was a big "twist" that I saw coming a mile away. There was too much foreshadowing. But maybe it wasn't supposed to be a twist?
There were a few ot ...more

I read all sorts of novels although many do not stay with me for long. This one is quite the opposite. Not only is there a completely shocking climax but the characterisation is well drawn and utterly convincing. The "moth" interludes only gradually make sense but the way that voice develops is masterful. One to relish !! ...more
I really enjoyed the main chapters. The additional parts discussing the moths, I didn't enjoy so much... At least not until the second half of the book, when the jigsaw started to come together. That I know the areas where much of the book was set was an added bonus. ...more
It was a fascinating story full of secrets, lies and omissions and I was sure I'd sussed it all out in my head and........I hadn't ! I was woefully wrong yet again. It was nice to read of a likeable protagonist as most of the females I've read about recently ha ...more
For me a page turner. Well developed plot. Surprising twists. Wonderful information about moths. The switching from the story line to the info about moths was brilliant. The author changed voices so convincingly between Julia and Rachel. Loved it as well as learned a lot.
